Happy Holidays

Whether it’s pre-Christmas celebrations, lunch on the big day, or gifts for the hard-to-buy-for on your list, we’re here to help.

For those pre-Christmas celebrations, we’re offering a tasting menu of four or five courses, available from 1 – 24 December. On the big day itself there’s our Indian Christmas Day lunch.

And for those hard-to-buy for people on your shopping list, we have a one-size-fits-all Regard Card which can be pre-loaded with whatever amount you want and given as a gift to be used for dining at Babur.

Christmas in Kerala Tasting Menu

The Christian community of Kerala was founded by St Thomas the Apostle in 52 CE. This community is referred to as either Thomas Christians or more commonly as Syrian Christians, because St Thomas spoke Syriac and this has always been their liturgical language. This community has had a long time to develop traditional Christmas dishes and we are pleased to present some of them for you.
